I had already dressed up as a Guantanamo prisoner in some manifestations against the war in Paris but at Herblay it was the first time. I had looked for persons who would do it with me but had found nobody. The approching French rapprochement with the OTAN made up my mind to do it alone despite having no protection and no help to give out flyers.
You know the hood was made from kraft paper which lets you see shadows, hear the people around you, and lets you breath but one does not feel safe. There is a darkness. Its like if you close your eyes and move. And after a time the air is not so abondant in oxygen. Of course to do this is not nearly so bad as it is for the Afghanistan prisoner who as well does not see his torturer. The person who beats him up.

Who could not be scared to be sick on a smelly, unkown, hostile vibrating aeroplane, with his hands tied behind his back, a thick suffocation sack on his head and a fear to suffocate from his vomit. You can imagine how it was on those americain c-130 transport planes, chained to the floor without the least means of scratching your nose against the ichy sack

I had something like thirty encouragements but the two persons who spoke loudly against what I was doing destroyed the rest.Having now, a week later, talk about my experience to my family and friends, I am not so ashamed having being present on the market like that. My effort is nothing compared to the difficulties of the Guantanamo prisoners ! I could give up when I wanted not them !

For safety reasons, I sat on a stool which was not efficient for distributing flyers and the Herblaysiens were obliged, in front of everbody, to make the effort to come up to me to take the flyers from my hand. For six persons who longly talked to me, I gave them a DVD with the most known 911 documentaries.
